Its been a little while since I posted on here. Working on my new novel has been all consuming. As usual I woke this morning knowing that my story would progress, become richer and satisfy my expressive desires. Not only that, my children would have a continuation of the tale they have thankfully taken such an interest.
My body and brain however had other ideas, waking with flu and a sleeping head. I started with a bit of free form writing, some of which I thought I’d share. Its a mental snapshot of my state of mind. I hope you enjoy. All comments welcome as usual x
Speak but don’t make a sound,
The message received with indifference
The voice that listens but has no opinion
Don’t try when you can help the stampede
Charging whilst sitting still
I’m in there
The cage that had lifted in my mind
A brief look at life after death has left me in a state of panic searching for life within life.
It’s all a matter of perception
Or so I’ve been told
The veil that clouds my mind darkens
The strength once so powerful and full of purpose
Replaced by an apologetic IOU
I will wake
